BRITAIN UNDER ATTACK

Drew and Trae Erpenbach

Nazi Germany is looking to expand into Great Britain

The Nazis have launched attacks onto Great Britain in the hopes of acquiring yet another European nation. In the past couple weeks, Germany has bombed the shoreline of Britain in hopes of gaining Air superiority across the English Channel. Which then they can easily overtake the British in a full invasion, and finally, have the Nazi flag waving across all of Europe. The Germans have overtaken so much in the past 2 years, making them a potential threat to America.

The Fireside Chats

It was a talk that President Roosevelt had with the country via radio between 1933 to 1944. He would talk about political issues happening at the time, including World War II.

Lend Lease Act

This was a program under which the U.S. supplied France, the U.K., and other countries with food, materials, and oil between 1941 to 1945. In return, the U.S. was given leases on army and navy bases in allied countries during the war.

Battle of the Atlantic

This was a battle on the Atlantic Ocean between the Germans and the Allied forces. It was the longest continuous battle of ww2, running from 1939 to 1945. The allies defeated the German blockade, but at a cost, losing over 3,500 merchant ships.

Should the U.S. Enter the war?

It would be a smart to join the war, but not at a full extent. Our allies in Europe are being attacked by the Nazis, so maybe we could send some assistance. If we lose those allies and they are invaded by Germany, then we will be less powerful due to having no allies. Also, in future wars and conflicts, we won't have assistance from our allies.
